“Has anyone provided proof of God’s inexistence? Not even close. Has quantum cosmology explained the emergence of the universe or why it is here? Not even close. Have our sciences explained why our universe seems to be fine-tuned to allow for the existence of life? Not even close. Are physicists and biologists willing to believe in anything so long as it is not religious thought? Close enough. Has rationalism and moral thought provided us with an understanding of what is good, what is right, and what is moral? Not close enough. Has secularism in the terrible 20th century been a force for good? Not even close, to being close. Is there a narrow and oppressive orthodoxy in the sciences? Close enough. Does anything in the sciences or their philosophy justify the claim that religious belief is irrational? Not even in the ball park. Is scientific atheism a frivolous exercise in intellectual contempt? Dead on.”

Watch this great video (below)
When Donald Trump beat Hillary Clintion and started dismantling Obama’s Fascist agenda shockwaves rippled trough the Internet.
Because the Political Candidate that the Admins of Google+Youtube, Twitter, and facebook endorsed and wanted to win (Hillary Clinton) lost!… and they realised that their own creations were a primary cause for their own defeat, and they took the Trump victory as such horror they envisioned the end of the Socialist Dream and Human Civilisation!
All their hard work deceiving the world into embracing Climate Change.
All their hard work imposing their anti-christian views on sexuality, all their dreams of a Global centralized Socialist Government etc looked like they were going to be set back 20 years…
This is when they abandoned any pretense to respect for free speech and open dialogue and determined that *Next US election* they would be better prepared to shut down political debates that were not in their own interests… and not just US elections… but they would control information on the Global scale.
Google searches will Bury Websites, blogs, memes, photos, and articles that are anti-left agenda, and would instead put pro left propaganda to the fore.
Facebook will simply axe whole pages they see as being anti-left platforms for their opponents, create Alogorithms that can read memes, and hunt out and automatically ban photos, memes, articles that have been flagged by their SJW minions and spies that infest the internet and political forums.
This is more than just the usual vetting of malicious content… its a massive escalation of definite suppression of dissenting opinions to the political views of these Social Media/ Internet Mogals.
A flexing of mussel designed to slope the playing field, giving massive advantage to their own opinions, to the degree that they will be manipulating the democratic process as surely and effectively as any tyrannical Government censorship.
And Facebook is not an absolutely ‘Free enterprise’. as Governments have heavily invested in Facebook shares.
To those of us whom understand the essential nature of having open dialogue, Alarm bells began to ring out when this Cabal of Internet Lords, all Banned Alex Jones and his ‘Info wars’… virtually wiping him off the map.
Jones was instrumental in the Trump victory as one of his most ardent supporters with a large global audience, and attacking Hillary Clinton as a Criminal and traitor.
Jones would talk daily on Items of importance… like the Bundy ranch resistance to the BLM, The Murder of Lavoy Finicm by The Black opps ‘Hostage rescue team’… things the mainstream media refused to Air.
The Mainstream media and Hollywood are also largely under control of Rabid Lefty Nutbars and they too engage in a program of keeping the sheeple in the dark.
Now I wont deny that Alex Jones says and does some pretty whack things, and that many of the ‘Investigative reports’ on Infowars are considered by many to be nothing but delusional conspiracies and ‘Fake news’.
Also I am a person who is myself disgusted by all the patently dishonest content on the internet flowing from legions of sites and blogs, and individuals with very bent opinions about everything… many of who mass produce Photo-shopped images, and fabricate patent lies about their political enemies… and in this dirty business it is the Right who i say are the chief offenders, and in this sence it should not be surprising that this mass-dishonesty by the Right has added fuel to the rage harboured by the Liberal Internet giants, it has also given them the pretext to begin their heavy censorship program… feigning a legitimacy to their Machiavellian schemes… and they used the notorious Alex Jones as a posterchild for what was about to follow.
Then Zuckerburg made his move and shut down 800+ facebook pages with millions of followers… mostly Anti-liberal agenda sites… under the pretext that these sites prosper from and disseminate fake news.
There was no warning… no discussion… it was a Night of the long knives action… fast, clean, and soon to be forgotten… while normalising the Idea that Anti-liberal opinion is ‘Hate speech’ and ‘fake news’and as such can rightfully be suppressed.
Of Course these actions would have caused Champagne to flow like water among the Lefty Parties, and hordes of Purple haired social justice warriors who have zero respect for any notions of fairness, free speech, etc and whose whole political means of action involves Compulsions and prohibitions.
This is the new puddle of stink that we all must now swim in… the Internet has changed… dramatically for the worst. Freedom is the victim. Satan Laughing spreads his wings!
And this is just the beginning… they will come for the Christians, They will come for the Mens Rights groups, They will come for the likes of The Leuren Sotherns and Stephan moloneuxs … who dare to challenge the Anti white propaganda of the left….. and Libertarians and bloggers like myself.
And just as insidious will be the *fear* this activity will generate among internet users who witnesswill drastically reduce what they share, and what they dare to say fearing that their pages could be shut down without redress at the whims of Facebook administrators…. All it takes is for a single Nasty purple haired Female SJW to ‘take offence’ at a comment or post that they dont like and to report you to the FB gestapo.
As a Passionate Voice of Dissent against Ideological evils and activities of both the Right and the left I have suffered an increasing number of these types of attacks, despite being vigilant and quickly blocking people who make it clear to me they are a SJW and are ‘Triggered’ by something I have said.
I have learned to move quickly to their profile and block them… hopefully before they have run to the Gestapo… one time I was too slow, a Joke I told on a Mushroom Identification page ‘Triggered’ a Purple hair thing (I wont assume her gender 🙂 ) and I was sent to Facebook Jail… for telling a joke!
This is not equal treatment but special privilege!
You can tell jokes about how Dumb Men are… but not any jokes about Transgenders, or SJW Neofeminists, etc…. another recent case was when I was commenting on an ENFJ Briggs-Meyers personality type page (I took the test and it said I was ENFJ Type) , and my comment was on the topic of Briggs-Meyers when some Purple-hair thing told me flat I was not an ENFJ because she had seen my previous profile pic and because it was a Meme-joke that mocked Neo-feminism… this was all the proof she needed that I was too ‘insensitive’ to be a member of *Her caring personality type!*
(The offending Picture Below)…
I dont have time to explain in detail what then transpired … it is enough to say a bunch more SJW Woman showed up and within a day of this, I had been thrown out of the group, and had my picture reported to Facebook whom quickly said It violated Facebook community standards and was Deleted.
Remember that I was not even discussing politics at the time this Attack started.
It was simply enough that It was my profile pic that the SJWs had taken offence to and got me thrown out and reported to the Facebook Gestapo.
^ This is what a SJW Feminazi looks like.
One more example I must share, It will take some explanation, yet it is worth it because it is very telling about how frightening things have become at facebook… and how powerful are their methods to screen everything that everyone is saying, and to crush anything that goes against their agenda, while leaving any BS that serves their purposes.
Below is another pic I shared in one of my photo albums, that is actually an example of despicable Right wing doctoring aimed at provoking anti-left sentiment. And they specialise in this particular type of photo doctoring that changes the message on a Protesters placard.
This one above is the Doctored picture. The one below is the original
Now it is only obvious to see that this picture has been doctored when you see the original, and I was taking it at face value, and had shared it to my page, when I read in the comments that followed that this was Doctored and the original was provided.
Of course I was peeved at this deception, It was not the first time I had gullibly shared a picture that had been doctored by the Right, and so Determined not to be so easily fooled again!
I noticed a pattern in these deceptive placard pictures that is also a dead giveaway for fake News articles in that if the Picture is too overt… or the Headlines of the ‘Newspiece’ is also way over the top’… then it is highly likely these things are manufactured Propaganda designed to doop the naive, and generate outrage.
Of course this should have been obvious to me before I had shared these things… yet It just goes to show how successful these dirty tricks can be.
Pissed off at the dirty tactics of the Right this time I created a photo album with the title of ‘The Right is as full of Dirty Liars as the left.’… and it featured this doctored picture, and I placed a description with it that said “I foolishly shared this photo thinking it was a *Real self-loathing white Lefty*… which it actually is… *Yet the message has been photoshopped by a dirty bastard Right winger who added in ‘Killing all’.
This is despicable deception… the sort that has ruined the internet… filled it with lies!
Designed to generate outrage and hate….”
I also shared the un-doctored Original so that my readers could see the obvious doctoring (photo shopping)
All was great… I was starting to populate my new album with more examples of these despicable Right wing deceptions when My Page was frozen by an automated program that had detected the doctored pic and told me that my Picture violated facebook standards.
Remember I had not put this pic in my album to *Spread the lie* but to expose the lie… yet the automation did not give a toss about that! It was simply ‘obeying za orders’ programmed into it to search and destroy this pic where ever it had been posted in Facebook.
I was however given the option to ask for a review… which I clicked… and was told this process would take about 24 hours… anyway much to my surprise my picture was restored!
And it was accompanied with the reply that the Review process found that my pic *Did not breach facebook standards* and that they had made a mistake!
Now it is not a long bow to draw that my picture had been reviewed by a living breathing Liberal SJW Facebook censor who realised I was using this picture to put the hate on the Right wingers… whom Facebook are trying to destroy… and so all of a sudden this picture was acceptable!!!!
All of a sudden it Did not breach their community standards!
This shows they are patently discriminating against the Right, while giving anything that is anti-right licence to kill! and has nothing to do with ‘Community standards’ at all!
And This copy remains as we speak in my photo album for the world to see!
Yet when I try and share it from my album, It gets sniped again by the search and destroy algorithm!
You can try this… copy the pic above and share it on your page and I guarantee you will get a visit from the Killbot.
I have also received links to reports that Facebook has been developing the software to screen *Every picture and meme* that gets posted… so they have absolute control to censor everything and anything, and that this is what they are doing.
I have had other attacks to my page too that affect my ability to function as a Libertarian Advocate and critic, yet this will suffice.
Multiply all this by Billions of times and the net effect this will have on the democratic process of western societies is mind numbing to apprehend!
The Masses of Facebook sheeple will be receiving more and more propaganda of the Left… with less and less voices of descent.
I fully expect to have my page shut down in the near future, yet until then I will be exposing this corruption!
Now this post is already ridiculously long, and maybe no one will read it yet I must make one final point… and it has to do with the solution to this Tyranical Cabal of Left wing Internet monsters.
First of all it is worrisome that many who suffer the oppression of the Facebook Gestapo will run straight to *Their Governments* asking them to pass legislation to take away the ‘evil powers’ from these Liberals who are hell bent on manipulating the public and the election processes of western nations.
They will probably say this is a perfect example of the need to implement *Antitrust legislation* to break up these massive companies into smaller chunks that are supposed to then work in competition with one another instead of collusion… Yes The Government regulators will save us!!!
That will be to leap out of the frying pan… into the fire!
You see *Internet Tyranny and control* is in fact something Western Socialist Democratic States have been dreaming of accomplishing *for themselves!*
The result will not be greater freedom of speech… but simply a shift of power from private hands into the Governments.
They will not simply legislate to break up Facebook, Google, etc, but will also legislate to make all sorts of internet communications illegal… and so instead of merely being thrown in ‘virtual jail’ as happens now… there is every probability that we will begin to be thrown in *Real jail* simply for expressing our own opinions (it is already happening!).
The Real solution is for some smart entrepreneurs and programmers to understand what is going on and to take steps to capitalise on the massive outrage that is being generated by the prejudices of the current internet giants, and to develop alternative social media sites and search engines… ones that have Iron clad security, and that have a constitution/ code of ethics to be what all ‘Free Press’ are supposed to be… the Vanguards of Freedom… of equal rights… of free speech!
And when this happens and people realise that there are far better places to do business than Facebook and Google… their power will be broken… their stocks will crash… and their reign of terror will be over.
This can be done without surrendering anything to Governments.
It will take time.
I have already signed up to MeWe social media site as an interim bolthole should my facebook page get axed, yet I have herd rumours of far better and secure social media site are in development as we speak!
Something called ‘Chain-blocking’ which is gibberish to me, yet my geeky friends assure me its very snazzy and will be awesome when it arrives!
And this is the Free market in action… and to the rescue!
The despicable tyrants running Youtube, Facebook, Google, have sown the seeds of their own destruction, and I hope the creators of these better sites are not only more ethical… which will be their greatest marketing strategy they could aspire to… but also that they become super wealthy from their creations that will go a long way towards halting the diabolical evils of Liberals Fascists in high places.
While I in no way fully endorse Donald Trump, I will say that By Defeating Hillary Clinton Trump saved America from a very very dangerous socialist tyrant.
And Donald Trump is by far a more honest, and just President than the despicable and psychotic Hillary Clinton who fully endorsed everything that Barack Obama did… they conspired together, and was poised to take things to the next level.
Thankfully the American people had had enough of their Diabolical and treasonous Agenda that was trying to destroy American Values, Rights,and freedom and force everyone into embracing Anti-Christian depravity and delusions… Grown men… perverts…. mentally ill allowed in Little girls Toilets!
Trumps victory has in fact caused the left to become even more psychotic… things are getting progressively worse… not just on line, but on the streets, and how Law and order is now being implemented.
The destroyers like violent Fascists groups like Antifa can cause riots etc with impunity, while anyone who tries to physically defend themselves will get arrested. Critics of the Left get their speeches cancelled, etc etc… there is a war against Freedom going on and its getting very violent.
It is becoming dangerous to oppose the psychotic Left.
^ here we see a guy in court who dared belong to a group called ‘Proud boys’. He was labeled a ‘member of a ‘hate group’ and a White Supremacist… even though he is married to a black woman and has black kids!
And you can guarantee it was Antifa who threw the first punch.
We all know their moto ‘Punch a fascist’… how Ironic… Today a Communist is just a Transgenderised Fascist!
Fascism in Drag.
Is this the world you wish your children to inherit?
If not… DO SOMETHING!
At least Like and share my blogposts!
ITS NOT NORMAL for me to speak ill of a beautiful woman… as a red blooded man I find it much easier to pour out guile upon Ugly Obese Female Social justice Warriors, or Dufus Hipsters who apologize for being men and are happy to take a strapped on you know what …up their… you know where… from their Dominatrix Better others.
That’s just my innate God given maleness that I must keep in check that otherwise naturally grants great privilege to Beautiful woman.
My topic today is Lizzy Marvelly… to whom I am going to honor as an equal… rather than the sexual Goddess she is…and be openly critical of her as a babe with very very deluded opinions.
Who in reality enjoys the fruits of extraordinary natural and political advantages… yet loves to play the victim… and put the hate on people like me … a Guy who is not ashamed of My manliness… and does not feel sorry for her.
Giving her a fair hearing… I find her to be little more than a Trendy thinker… going with the follow of what she has been spoon fed.
She can rest assured she will never be banned or deleted from Facebook, Google,etc… as she absolutely conforms to ‘Their community standards’
I’m married, and very much older than her so it’s not like I’m blowing my chances of a date!
She… if she was ever to read this… and look up my Facebook profile would no Doubt just take me as a Dirty Old man engaging in petty (or nasty) ‘Cyber bullying’… not realising I am doing her the decency of taking her seriously as a thinker… and worthy of criticism… which in my opinion is more than she *objectively* deserves.
Though I find her opinions puerile, I do take them seriously because I take sexism and racism seriously… She is both these things… and more… which is why she gets paid by the New Zealand Herald for being the politically correct professional victim.
Despite her Immense Sexual Capital as a hot babe, for whom life is demonstrably ‘privileged and ‘easier’ Lizzy says she lives under an oppressive patriarchy… so she’s a victim
Lizzy writes on Maori oppression … and claims to suffers the consequences… living under an oppressive system of white supremacy.
Her latest claims…. Lizzy jumped out of the closet to tell us she has sexual fantasies about other woman… and so is a self professing member of the oppressed ‘Rainbow community’… and just over the last few weeks she appeared on the front page of the NZ Herald as the poster child for those oppressed for ‘Cyber Bullying’.
So she has added this as well to her list of personal Victimhood!
If playing the victim was an Olympic sport, Shes would be one of the champions!
It is typical of someone like her… with the victim mentality… to take any critisisms… esp from angry White Men who she maligns at ever opportunity…. as being some sort of ‘injustice’ and ‘prejudice’ she is enduring.
No doubt some critisims *Are simply nasty and hateful*, the world is full of haters… and I am not saying that *all* the critisims she receives will reasonable and just… nor that the problem of cyber Bulling is not a real thing of concern… but that she has a pathology to construe virtually everything as some sort of form of social oppression… and a penchant for Lording ‘Identity Movements’ and playing ‘Identity politics’… which is a signature of a prejudiced mind.
Ie *She is participating in precisely they types of thinking and politics she pretends to be fighting!
who is the real sexist, racist, and bigot?
What if I told you this post is not really about Lizzy?
This is not personal.
What if I told you I am only using her as an example of a far greater ideological cancer Western society is suffering?
I dont hate her… I pity her… If she is a victim… she is a victim of our Politically correct Lobotomizing society… that puts Racists and Sexists of the Politically correct types up on a Pedestal and holds them forth as Heroic exemplars.
This type of dirty politics also tries to monopolise the Public discussions on all the important topics… so that Critical men of feminism are considered ‘unqualified to talk’ because of the bulge in their undies.
White critics of Treaty separatism and so called positive political discrimination… are considered ‘Unqualified’ to discuss the matter… because they dont belong to the particular racial minority that is being held up as suffering oppression.
So we see socialist Politicians are desperate to be able to identify themselves with some group that is popularly seen to be socially oppressed?
So I do not hold any malevolence against Lizzy… I dont think she is one the absolutely Seething Men haters or Racists who hate Whites…that infest the Social justice scene.
She is probably absolutely oblivious to the fact that she is just a puppet of the predominant delusions of our day.
What is Drummed into the kids at schools and Universities by deranged socialist teachers… following the dangerous and deluded policies dictated from the Beehive.
We are bombarded by this propaganda via the Media, and thus She is helping to fuel this madness with her own skewed mind that has been programmed like a robot.
Woman have held some of the Top Jobs in this country!
Yes it is had for me to take her claims of being a victim seriously given how she is a member of the most privileged Sex, the most privileged Race in our Politically correct skewed society.
Privilege has nothing to do with statistical outcomes like about how much more men earn… or how many Maori are in jail… but about the principles of Equality before the law, and fairness in courts… and under that measure Woman won the war against ‘the Patriarchy’ a long time ago… yet they have refused to disband… why? Because playing the victim is a powerful tool to manipulate the system, and because if you get rid of ‘Victemhood’ socialism has absolutely nothing to offer.
Reality is that Woman have and do hold some of the Top Jobs in this country!
Social Statistics are far more complex than Socialists pretend when they blame ‘oppression’ all day… yet because that is virtually the only trick in the socialist bag… they have destroyed movements that were once great reforming powers… Highly Moral… into grotesque Caricatures of their former Glory… Feminism now represents hatred of Men… Anti Racism now represents Race hate against whites… etc etc.
Lizzy, if you ever read this, please see the funny side of my jibs about finding you sexually attractive… This too was just to make a point… that its not a crime for a man to find woman sexually appealing based upon their looks…. in fact I believe God designed us the do exactly that and enjoy Sex and Beauty, and manliness and distinct from the feminine… Differences we should should greatly appreciate.
Nor as a married man do I think it proper for me to carry on like a hot blooded single young man.
My own Christian Ethics definitely says I should keep my overt sexual desires in check, and respect woman for far more than just their looks… which fade anyway… and to value their minds, Character, and their soul.
Yet to me there are few things as ugly as a Raging woman pouring out hatred against men.
How is our society ever going to be strong if woman have been taught to be irrationally demanding and of ridiculous expectations of Men?
You are setting up young woman to fail in relationships if they are Taught that Basic Male-ness is toxic.
Please think about these things.
How sad it is that a wolf whistle has been twisted from an expression of admiration and is now construed as some sort of ‘Rape culture’!
The truth is that Socialism has made *Men* the most oppressed sex… yet we will never see The NZ Herald putting this fact on the front page of their Politically biased propaganda…
The meme below may be a reference to the US, yet the same is tragically true in New Zealand… and its absolutely shocking to witness the oppression of Men at the hands of our corrupt system.
One final quote from Lizzy encapsulates her utter delusional victim mindset… despite Maori and Woman having *more say* on all topics in this country she cant stand *any other opinions being voiced*… such as Don Brash whose group ‘Hobson’s Pledge’ represents New Zealanders (like myself) who are fighting for racial equality before the Law… she says
“I’ve met Don Brash, and I have actually enjoyed time in his company. He is personable and courteous. He also holds and voices opinions I wholeheartedly believe are harmful to my people and my culture, and that I find nauseating. They’re the kind of views that, in my opinion, distort history and stoke separatism. And he insists on repeating them, over and over.
So forgive me for not feeling any great depth of feeling about Don Brash being denied one of the many platforms that he regularly enjoys. The decision to ban him from speaking at Massey University was undoubtedly an ill-considered own-goal, but it hardly amounts to an attack on the foundations of our democracy.”
“As a Māori woman, who is often the only Māori and/or the only woman in speaker line-ups, on panels and on media shows, I’m far more concerned about the women and people of colour who are effectively censored by exclusion or tokenism than I am about Don Brash not speaking to a handful of students.
While Brash could quickly reinstate his freedom of expression by squawking to the media, others aren’t so fortunate. In practice, free speech for people of my culture and gender is more of a luxury than a right.”
And on the individual level the ‘Victim mentality’ would be one of the most self-defeating, self-flagellating psychological millstones any human being can have!
It is absolutely dis-empowering because it always blames others of our personal problems rather than taking ownership of our own lives and realising our success or failure is determined by the choices we make ourselves and personal responsibility… rather than simply being leaves blown about by the wind.
This is the poison Maori’s own spokespeople are preaching into the minds of their youth… and is why the terrible social statistics never improve despite billions being thrown at them ‘to right the wrongs of the past and end racial oppression’.
Maori’s shameful condition has nothing to do with racial oppression and everything to do with their Culture of Hatred and Blame, and Drug-dependency on Toxic Socialism.
This post does not seek to belittle, or blame Christine and Karl Laulu, but to take their tragic experiences and use them for education… hopefully to help people grasp the issues at stake… not only the very real risks involved in vaccination of babies, but also of what happens when we put too much faith in ‘Authorities’ whether they be Official… or seemingly unbiased academics.
These Samoan Parents Lost a child to vaccination… had another child… and lost that one too… to vaccination!
We are subject to heavy indoctrination and pressure to trust the establishment, to the degree that Parents who choose not to vaccinate are accused of being ‘antiscience’ … Schools raving on that abstainers are dangerously incompetent as parents… and endangering other children… who have assumingly had their vaccinations (Figure out the logic on that one!), etc, etc.
Socialists are trying to pass legislation to make vaccinations compulsory resulting in the removal of parental rights and ownership of our children by the state… and this is nothing new. It is how socialism has always opperated… by force… by an all powerful state and ever diminishing personal rights and responsibilities.
Vaccination has become an industry about profit more than medicine..
I will highlight two facts in particular with respect to this case.
Here we see the folly of the ‘one size fits all’ approach to health and medicine.
From these tragic cases of the Laulu children we see that *There can be individual factors* that make something that is safe and effective for most… ineffective and even Fatal for others… and we could spend all day enunciating examples of this fact… and that small minds operate on a single simplistic cognitive level… and to follow on from this and record the fact that this family case is an example that vindicates the reality that the Anti-Vaxx crowd *are not without plenty of evidence* that Vaccines can and do destroy lives! and that this is a very real risk factor Parents must consider when deciding whether or not to vaccinate their Kids.
The Truth is *Even the vested interests in the establishment knows this risk is real*, and that there are thousands of cases of adverse reactions and deaths from their Quackery… yet they are hell bent on downplaying this reality and deceiving people like the Laulu’s into subjecting their children to the System.
After their first child Jamie ray died after his vaccination , No Doubt these poor parents had second thoughts about subjecting their next child yet we can be sure they were ‘Persuaded’ by the establishment that their second child would be fine…. Their trust would again blow up in their face when their Daughter Alana-Rae died two years later!
Their mistake was to trust the sloped opinions of Orthodoxy and suffer the cost *twice*!
And this stuff is going on every day around the globe with ‘Health experts’ simply writing off these Deaths, and severe side effects as ‘Collateral damage in the ‘war against disease’.
That there is any need to vaccinate against Measels and mumps is extremely questionable given that historically parents would deliberately expose their children to these diseases… to get them over and done with… building up immunity *naturally* without any need for Pharmaceutical company merchandise.
We can easily see that our population… via subversion of the education system has been indoctrinated into believing Vaccination for Measles and mumps is a Must… and that this is propaganda motivated by profit cloaked as ‘Contentious parenting’… and that Socialists take this subject as an opportunity to accrue more power to the state… using the state education system to indoctrinate the masses.
As an informed Libertarian parent over the past 8 years my wife and I have had to make a decision about vaccinating my son… and though my wife’s had a female cousin that suffered a catastrophic reaction to the Rubella vaccination some 3 decades ago… leaving her mentally handicapped, wheelchair bound, and dead before 30… we still went ahead with his courses, so any accusation that I am a staunch ‘Anti-vaxx’ nutbar is proven false… yet I do not blame any parents who decide they dont want to subject their beloved young children to the quacks.
Like any ‘industry’… Orthodox medicine is a vested interest that seeks to skew the public dialogue in its favour.
It has a vested interest to try and crush any competition which takes the form of ‘alternative treatments’, etc… and belittle any criticism against itself.
When the government acts in favour of large pharmaceutical companies against alternative private health practitioners This is fascism.
We should be ‘free to choose’… yet always taking care to make informed decisions…. There is no escaping this personal responsibility… to simply trust the ‘experts’ without investigation is extremely risky… yet Governments want you to abdicate your rights and responsibility for your own health.
Politicians are constantly campaigning on the idea that its the governments Job to Nanny us all like children when it comes to our health, and that is their excuse for heavy taxes on Smokes, booze, and why they want to add taxes to sugar and fats.
I hope all my readers are today well aware about how wrong Orthodoxy has been about animal Fats!
The Socialists attempting to make immunisation compulsory is a Global problem… an agenda that takes away parental rights and gives ownership of your children to the state
“It takes a Village” say Hillary Clinton!
She says raising Children is primarily the States Job and that Parents are merely ‘second tier’ caregivers….
This is about absolute power and control over future generations!
I have many friends and family who work within the medical establishment and I do not seek to belittle the great work that they do… yet still in private conversations they will admit to me how much guesswork and shoddy practices go on… how State Budgets put pressure on staff and that mistakes can happen.
Few people understand that Deaths from medical misadventure in New Zealand are more prolific that deaths from Car accidents… even though most of us will know people who have suffered and died because of poor care within the system.
As a Libertarian I believe the state should not be involved in the health industry and that this in itself is the greatest single cause of out ‘suffer and die while you wait’ status quo and that full privatization of health (with the requisite reduction in taxes) would be a gigantic step forward… not only in efficiency… but also in putting the power and responsibility for our own health back into our own hands… breaking our dependency on Nanny State.
So while smokers would get huge Tax reductions… they would have to do the math on their health insurance… same with the Obese… etc etc… ie there would be natural intensives to abandon vise and live healthier lives.
There is a great delusion about the benefits of state health.
Doctors and hospitals were not invented by governments but were ‘appropriated’ by them.
And the level of care in the public health system is extremely low compared to Private hospitals,etc.
Walking the Grey halls of your average State hospital feels like you are transported to Soviet Russia!
Staff complain about wages.
The whole idea of being involved in health or education as being a vocation rather than a money making career has absolutely evaporated under socialism.
To many doctors and Nurses we patients are just like broken down cars to mechanics… how they make Bank… the humanity is slipping away.
I have my own facebook page Self Help. Alternative Treatments and Health the idea being to put people back in control of their own health issues.
Please like… and contribute.
I am very liberal with what I post there… my job is not so much to endorse suggested alternative veiws and treatments as it is to provide a forum where people can find things to make up their own minds and discuss.
The above pic is part of a Full Front Page Propaganda Piece by the New Zealand Herald , that not only captures Jacinda Ardern’s Outrageous claims that it is not the governments Rapacious taxes that are responsible for New Zealanders being ‘Fleeced’ at the gas pumps… as she jumps on that Tired old, yet faithful Hobby horse … blaming Greedy Fuel companies… and then following up with threats of new legislation.
All this dishonesty is Evil enough, yet if that is where it stopped the only thing that could be said about the article was that the Herald was simply reporting on Arderns lame denials, and subversion … yet that is far from what happened on October 8 2018… see the pic below.
The Herald engaged in outright Propaganda of its own… of the very worst sort… showing that it is far from impartial and that it may as well be written from an office in Arderns spin doctor department!
This absolutely shocking Pie Graph (above) appeared in the same *Front page* expose… which is so distorted that even a mediocre mathematician like myself cant help but spot glaring falcehoods!
The most Obvious one being that it pretends that 94.3 cents is well over 50% of $2.45.9 !!!!
The 94 cents is the actual cost of the one liter of petrol, leaving a remainder of just over $1.51 of Taxes and Fuel company overheads and profits.
By grossly misrepresenting this component (in white)… for political ends, they could then visually minimise the truth about how much of the price of fuel is taken in Taxes (Levies are just taxes too!)
Thus the Herald pie graph grossly under proportions the real amount the Government gets… esp noticeable with the segment that is supposed to show the 15% GST component (in Green)
I have worked out that the segment the herald attributes to ‘GST’ fits into the pie graph almost 23 times! when if this segment was honest it would be a portion that ought to only fit in 7.667 times!
This is a distortion of the truth in favour of the lies of Jacinda Ardern of a magnitude of nearly 300% !!!!
This is Barefaced dishonesty by New Zealand’s Largest Newspaper!
Then just step one day ahead… to today… October 10, 2018… page 3 and we read an article baced upon the Opposition party Leader Simon Bridges who is trying to make as much political capital from the public outcry against Arderns new fuel Taxes by calling for them to be scrapped… and this article has another graph… yet conveniently for the Herald… its not a Pie graph but a bar graph (see below)
Now this one at a glance is far more honest than the one they ran only the day before on the front page…. firstly we can see that the 94.3 cent component is rightly proportioned at well less than 50% of the total cost… and ‘Hello’… the real component being fleeced from us by the government is nearly 50% of the total price!
leaving a mere 33.9 cents for Feul companies overheads and profit … a proportion of the total cost being a mere 1/7th of the whole!
Now The Bullshit we are being fed by Jacinda Ardern and her sycophants at the herald is a mountain high and is despicable!
what bothers me the most is that this blatant dishonesty at the Herald may not be picked up by uncritical readers… thus perpetuating the lie that The Government is not to blame for the suffering and growing poverty in New Zealanders… and that its all because of greedy corporations that need more legislation!
Patent falsehoods for despicable political ends!
Remember Ardern’s Election promise “no new taxes”… Yeah Right!
This is outrageous!
She is unfit to govern… National is no better.
New Zealand desperately needs a New Libertarian Party… and New/ better Newspapers…|
The New Zealand Herald is corrupt and has failed in its duty… the roll of ‘the Free press’ is supposed fulfill as a vanguard of freedom in an enlightened society.
Heads should Roll!
And to think the world swoons at Arderns feet!
Satan Laughing spreads his wings.
And you wonder why poverty is growing in this country!
Had enough yet?
Update: 10-12-18… I should have mentioned the fact that Ardern has an even more nefarious ends in mind she is not talking about… she… and her Green Party coalition partners are part of the Global Cabal who want to Ban Motorcars and force people into State transportation systems under their Machiavellian ‘Climate change’ Agenda.
So secretly she *wants* the people to hurt… she *wants* people to not to be able afford to run private motor vehicles…
This is a hot topic at the UN… where she loves to grandstand… with her Baby!
She is a Fraud and a tyrant.
Poverty is growing in New Zealand.
Suicide is too.
Financial stress is destroying families.
With the heavy oppression I face from the Tax department, only two things prevent me from becoming a dangerous enemy of the state… rather than a passive victim.
1. My responsibility as a husband and Father to put their immediate well-being ahead of my need for vengeance.
2. My Christian faith that abhors violence… even against those who deserve it… yet the restraints of these two factors have limits… I ask myself at what point does it become the Christian and Fatherly Duty to take up arms and wage war against a tyrannical State?
Anyone here remember the words of the American Declaration of Independence and why America was born?
How many struggling families receive Threatening letters about arbitrary ‘Debts’ from The New Zealand tax department each week?
How many self employed people are bankrupted by the IRD… or loose everything they have worked years to gain?
There is a crisis going on!
What will it take to stop the Legalised Robbery?
The Government makes Organised crime look like amateurs!
So far my Activism has been Peaceful and reason based… like the Gospel… an appeal to the hearts and minds of my fellow citizens… Yet the Jackboots of the state are kicking at my door…. like Extortionate Gangsters.
They are destroying the lives of the virtuous and hard working.
Yet the *real sad truth is* it is *you*…. my fellow countrymen who continue to vote for the Rapacious Extortioners… and their ever growing addiction to expropriation.
You vote for the Theft… You support the Media personalities who encourage the IRD to take more… and more…
How many more homeless people will have to die in gutters? how many suicides and broken families will loose everything before you realise that it is the Jack booted Government *itself* that is by far the greatest threat to your lives and family?
Every Tax hike pushes more Families towards crisis.
Nonetheless like a runaway juggernaut the Government and Councils are having meetings about the country scheeming more ‘innovative’ ways to take our money for their whack schemes!
Tax is Crack Cocaine to Socialist addicts like Ardern.
The pic above is the sort of ‘editorial’ that passes for wisdom in New Zealand when it is nothing short of absolute falcehoods and propaganda designed to ‘soften up’ the masses into accepting new and higher Taxes!
They peddle the lie that higher taxes will bring greater prosperity!
They peddle that great Lefty lie that those with property have not contributed ‘their share’ to society!
Tolerance towards this sort of sycophancy in the media in New Zealand is outrageous!
How Journos and editors can get away with such one eyed lies is a testament to how lobotomized our population is(thanks state education).
The so called ‘Free Press’ have failed in their Duty as the vanguard against tyranny.
Read : Lost Plot. World Press Freedom Day.
We are expected to maintain composure while being fleeced… to suffer in silence… to maintain the Delusions that higher Taxes are Good, Justified, enlightened, when in reality by far greatest cause of Poverty in this country is Socialist over-government and heavy taxation.
No matter how hard I work… or how many thousands of dollars I withhold from my family and give to the beast… no matter how many Holidays I forego… They still send me threatening letters telling them I owe them tens of thousands more….
How many of you are working yourselves to death… forego Medical attention for yourself… yet suffer sleepless nights, and whose only Forlorn hope is to win lotto?
They take the Joy out of life and keep families on the edge of poverty at all times. (A Habitat of Envy and want under which white horse riding socialist Scammers flourish… )
For the Grace of God People…. Wake up!!!!
Stop worshiping evil Idiots like Jacinda Ardern!
The Labour Party is not the friend of the worker!
She is *not* a heroic leader… she is a Thief and a bully.
She’s a sexist, Racist hypocrite…
Why she (and her ilk) are in power is because *her* sexism… *her* Racism… *her* hypocrisy… and *Her Economic delusions* all are of the popular variety.
She’s a Retard…. Captaining a ship of Fools.
Of course the problem is bigger than Jacinda’s Regime… Its Ideological and systemic… she’s just the latest Demagogue to wield the flail.
The real problem for Modern civilization is in the unfathomable void… the monumental sheepish ignorance of our systemically lobotomised voting populations.
You Useful Idiots still believe socialists care?
What sort of Slavery are we bequeathing to our children?
Speak now or forever hold your piece… pun intended.
Politically Homeless Libertarian Slave of the State.
One of the greatest dangers to the conservation of Western culture that Southern and Molyneux want to come to New Zealand to warn us about are those that stem from allowing a large influx of migrants and Refugees…from a starkly different culture.
Migrants who have no intention of assimilating their host nations culture or values and fervently harbour anti-Western ideas… such as outlawing critics of their religion … and that accommodating these alien ideas will spell the end of the Religious liberty we have enjoyed …founded upon tolerance and equality.
This should not be a surprise to anyone… and obviously measures need to be in place to protect the degrading of our rights and Liberties.
The price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance… Our Heritage of Liberty and tolerance needs to be rigorously defended!
Well… Sadly… We see that the Islamic community in New Zealand already has leadership that thinks nothing of lobbying government to prevent speakers coming here they perceive as being critics of Islam!
And we already have Liberal Politicians who have zero respect for conserving Western culture more than willing to accommodate them!
*And that* is the *Real problem*… because in any society there will always be Petty Groups… and even malevolent groups who desire Laws that circumvent the rights and liberties of others… the problem happens when they are able to move Legal/Political powers to enact their anti-liberty desires.
Does anyone appreciate the Irony of this situation?
The arguments of Southern and Molyneux are being validated before our very eyes!
Is it already too late?
Has the sun already begun to set on Freedom and religious toleration in New Zealand?
I think so!
It is proven that even ‘Moderate’… Cosmopolitan forms of Islam (if that is what the ‘New Zealand Federation of Islam’ claims to be) are organisations dedicated to destroying Western ideals about personal Freedom… and enjoying life in a free and open society… Co-existing in peace based upon Ironclad Rights and liberties.
They want their religion (Islam) to be shielded from critique.
“She’s just going to insult all of us”
The Islamic community voiced their opposition to the visit last month.
New Zealand Federation of Islam Associations president Hazim Arafeh said it had written letters to the Immigration Minister, Minister for Ethnic Communities and the Human Rights Commission asking for Lauren Southern to be denied entry.
“[She] abuses her right of freedom of speech. She’s just going to give a talk in which she’s just going to insult all of us,” Mr Arafeh said.
“I don’t think insulting Muslims comes under free speech, that’s an abuse of freedom of speech.
“I’m talking on behalf of 50,000 to 60,000 Muslims in New Zealand who are going to face a very hard time by all the comments she is going to make.”
And the Anti-Western Commy Mayor of Auckland Phil Goff tweeted….
We see Goff quick to capitalize on this opportunity for extreme left ‘Virtue signalling’ that was not to be missed… under the pretense that the planned Speaking tour was ‘Divisive’.
Notice how on one hand we get Western Liberals applauding when their politically appointed partisan Judges insist Christian Bakers must accommodate Customers who want ‘Gay Wedding Cakes’… yet also these same hypocritical Ideologues then suggest it is a Right to exercise conscience *not to allow Southern and Molyneux use of Public facilities paid for by all Ratepayers… irrespective of Race, religion, or cultural heritage!
We can be certain that the council has in the past happily allowed its Publicly owed venues for such Radical Racists as
This is clear discrimination by the state in both counts… and on both counts it displays an agenda to suppresses the Religious liberty of the Cultural conservatives for the sake of pandering to the Anti-religious liberty sentiments of various sectors of our society.
Stephan Molyneux is also everything the Lefty Liberal SJW Retards love to hate.
Hes a Man… (Patriarchal Privilege)
He’s White… (White privilege)
He’s a defender of Western Values.
He’s unapologetic for any of that!
Banned from Entering New Zealand!
For The record let it be known that I have been very outspoken about what I didn’t like about Trumps Anti-refugee Electioneering… and I have defended the humanitarian urgency with regard to the plight of the Syrian refugees… and so I am not a person who endorses all the sentiments of Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux… yet it has been waay too easy for a biased press to wheel out Prejudiced academics like the so-called ” Massey University far-right expert and vice chancellor Paul Spoonley …. saying some of what the pair say was considered hate speech and labeling them as ‘Far Right extremists’… when in reality Southern and Molyneux are very mainstream Western Conservatives… not Rightist radicals at all.
The last time I remember anything like this was when New Zealanders were denied opportunity to listen to the arguments of Holocaust denier and Historian David Irving… a Man who was later jailed for the crime of having an opinion contrary to The Politicians and academics of Europe.
Now This is no joke!
Not a triffilng matter… not a victory for Social progress… but a plunge into the abyss!
In England, an act of unworthy of any Civilized Free society an associate of Lauren Southern … Journalist Tommy Robinson… was marched straight to jail… without normal due process… because he desired to expose the legal Travesties going on in British courts by which Muslim rapists escape justice that would be meted out to any other demographic!
So on one hand people who balk against the Liberal’s PC agenda are criminalised and thrown in jail pronto while the system panders to *Real Criminals* in the misguided idea that Britain ought to accommodate the anti-western cultures of Non-citizens!
The Ultra Right parties are definitely on the rise in Europe… taking advantage of the chaos and disorder that has ensued because of Weak governments management of the Refugee Crisis, yet it is not *Ultra right* to protest against this Politically Correct travesty *but Conservatism*… yet because the principles and arguments that oppose all this Lefty Garbage may be broadly understood as ‘Libertarian’… this makes it easy for Lefty academics and politicians to label these ideas as ‘Far Right’… which is where these charlatans have always lumped Libertarians… as if they are Nazis!
And the Dopey shepple believe these lies.
Libertarians are as opposed to Rightist Fascism as they are opposed to Lefty Communism … and for the very same reasons… both forms of socialism… on the left and right … are all about totalitarianism… and both trample underfoot the rights and liberties of Individuals… Destroying lives… filling Prisons… and pounding anyone who will not comply into the ground.
And we have Bold speakers here in New Zealand … ‘Holocaust deniers’ like Bruce Moon and John Ansell who dare to contradict the ‘Official History’ of the British colonization of New Zealand as being systematic oppression of The Maori people.
Unlike David Irving… Moon and Ansell have history on their side!
The revisionism is the 100% propaganda of the Lefty academics and radicals, yet tt is not a very long march from Banning Foreign speakers… to jailing our citizens who critisise our own governments views.
This is where all this is heading.
Had David Irving been allowed to come here and talk it is highly unlikely he would have persuaded anyone that the German Holocaust against the Jews did not happen!
And at the risk of a few nutballs swallowing a few delusions… the principle of free speech is far to precious to be surrendered!
Lefty Politicians Like Phil Goff’s Labour Party… and the Greens that are infested with Purple haired ‘Social Justice Warrior’ Lunatics… most of whom are confused about their own sexuality…harbor a deep repugnance for New Zealand’s Western Christian Heritage, and this being so we see a stark prejudice against Christian values, to the degree that we can be sure that They would not pander to any ‘Christian Lobby’ that would be silly enough to Demand people like Richard Dawkins or Neil deGrasse Tyson be denied visas ‘Because they insult Christianity’… etc.
The Hypocrisy of the left stinks to high heaven!
I believe that if there is any organised protest against this travesty preventing Southern and Molyneux for coming here and talking that all liberty loving Kiwi should endevour to be there… even if you do not endorse what they represent as this not simply about supporting what these individual want to say… Its a much BIGGER and FAR MORE IMPORTANT MATTER!
Its about telling our Government they have no right to shut down Dissenters who peacefully expound Ideas that are contrary to the governments Agenda!
We Kiwi have the right to invite such people… and to listen to what they have to say… and to make up our own minds about such things!
It is Dangerous to allow the government to control what we hear, Read, watch, etc!
This is Fundamental to living in a free society!
Any society that looses this is in grave peril… and will have jails filled with political prisoners… and I am not just talking about Hell holes like North Korea!
The Lefty Liberals about the Globe are fast eroding our rights and Freedom… fast pandering to intolerance… in the name of tolerance!
The Great Evil Anti-free speech Liberal doctrine is of course the the Deception of ‘Hate Speech’ by which any critisism of anything… any group… any idea… may be construed as being ‘Hate speech’… esp if such criticism goes against the Agenda of the ruling party.
And of course The Right to Free speech especially matters when people what to say *unpopular things*… because that when intolerant people and vested interests… who have no recourse to reasoned arguments… seek to shut them down by Legalised force.
If This travesty is allowed to pass without protest you can count New Zealand as being one of the most petty Nations on Earth!
A Lefty Liberal S#!t hole!
And next They will Ban Christian speakers who are opposed to Abortion… Or Whom have opposed Gay Marriage…. or Hippies who advocate the end of the war on Drugs!
Now though I am a Christian Libertarian, I have no problems with Peaceful Muslims immigrating here… and I have advocated we accept far more Muslim refugees from such Humanitarian Crisis as the Syrian war… yet these people can only come here under the strict condition that they will obey our Laws and respect our Rights and Liberties!
They have no legitimate right to start lobbying the government to pass Laws that infringe upon our legitimate freedoms… or to expect special treatment.
As long as they peacefully go about their own business their is no reason why they cannot carry on enjoying their own culture and beliefs, yet if there is an in-congruence between their culture and that of their hosts… if anyone must culturally change and assimilate… it is the Immigrant… and refuge… not the Citizens of the host country.
If this condition is unacceptable to them… they should leave.
Like Citizens… They may voice their disagreements… yet they certainly dont have the legitimate right to lobby Government to Ban speakers whom are critics of Islam… any more that I have the right to lobby Government to ban critics of Christianity!
If I dont like what some speakers are saying I can ignore them… or take the opportunity to present a rational argument as to why they are in error… or challenge them to Public debate… or if I feel the need I may organise *A Peaceful* and civilized demonstration rally… Yet The Idea that certain speakers may be prevented from holding their meetings because of threats of violence from intolerant groups is absolutely unforgivable!
It is the Governments Job to see to it that Law and order prevails against such thuggery… and that the right to free speech be upheld… against the barbarians who think violence is the way to suppress their critics… rather than civilised debate…
Failure of Government to see to it that Controversial speakers are well guarded… and that the events take place is to let the Mob Rule!
And again we see that it is *The Wacko* Lefties with their ‘Social Justice Warriors’… ‘Antifa’, etc who have no qualms about resorting to Violent protest… rioting… and vandalism.
These things are crimes… not protests… and the Criminals should be thrown in Jails… and be made to pay for any property damage they cause.
They are the most likely to send Death threats, etc
In no way are they like the principled protests of Martin Luther King and his civil Rights movement, and ought to placed in stark contrast to them.
Even when engaged in ‘civil disobedience’… They were Never violent… never destructive of property… never angry… but full of Love and high ideals… and they won!
In those days it was the Separatist Status Quo who wanted to shut them down and prevent King and co from speaking… and whom resorted to violence!
Never should the Dialogue on sensitive issues be allowed to be hijacked by Political vested interests or the Mob.
Now I am not suggesting that the Islamic Federation of New Zealand is ‘a hotbed of radical Islam’ hell bent on turning New Zealand into an Islamic Caliphate’!
I have seen some good things that have come from this organisation in the past… yet I absolutely condemn their demands to ban Critics of Islam from being allowed to come here and talk.
They have overstepped the mark…
Idiot hippies are calling this “Environmental art…
You superstitious fools!
Atheist *Scientists* argue… and they would know… because they are so much smarter than idiots who believe in ‘Intelligent design’… and…. you are not *qualified enough* to have any contrary opinion of weight…. they say this is ‘simply’ a natural occurrence… no design… fully explicable via the laws of gravity, mass, motion, etc.
Pay Homage to Multiverse theory!
We just so happen to live in a universe where this happened…. randomly… without a creator…
Dont argue… you are ‘Anti-science’… (and probably a terrorist)
The world has been taken over by Sub-humans. ( proof of De-evolution/ Entropy… the world is getting more ridiculous not less)
Seriously… the main reason why there are so few new Blog posts here @ Eternal vigilance… is because of the absolute chaos that is afoot… yet… is numbingly accepted as ‘Business as usual’ by our left/ right/ center socialist Democratic lunatic asylum Masses of dumbfounded dipshits.
Its literally Driving Eternal vigilance bloggers to Clinical depression!
By Gods Grace I try to practice the dictim…
I could Blog on the latest news of arsewipe NZ Bankers and ‘Tax working group’ who think that a 10% capital gains tax would be wonderful because it could be expected to deliver a 10.8% reduction on house prices…. forget the vested interest bankers have in pouring poop on any investment decisions you may dare to make that they dont get the biggest cut…. and of course *the government* is just itching… like a meth addict… to get that 10 %.
I could blog about the latest conundrum in archaeology in the holy land… with respect to a Clay figurine’s decapitated head and the arguements as to which *biblical figure* the head depicts… all options being recorded in the Bible (yes… the bible is history folks… not fairy tales).
But lets ignore the facts… too inconvenient for the many.
I could blog about The most vile politician in New Zealand today…. the guy who is such a snake that he suckered me to voting for him…. Winston Peters… now acting Prime minister… and the dirty coalition deals he did with the super dishonest Jarcinda Ardern… and how ridiculous it is that the NZ Herald thinks that Peters… the Political Dinosaur… will struggle to wear Jacaranda’s Pull up nappies and trendy little disco PM boots!
and lets ignore the ‘Gay abandon’ Shane Jones and Whinnie have flamboyantly Twerked in farmers faces with respect to their choreographed condemnation of ‘Fonterra executives’ for their massive losses in China!
You simply cant get greater shyster political Posturing for the sake of ones own ends… by duping a powerful demographic than that!
I could talk about the absolute pathetic wallowing of National party Leader Simon Bridges pandering to the Greens … ‘Global warming agenda’… in the face of propaganda that Antarctica is melting… despite the fact that NASA says it is growing… a pathetic…. act of desperation on his part!
And on and on it goes…. as we sail towards the abyss of stupidity!
I would quit completely and pray for comets to fall from the sky if it were not for my Children… and their children… and your children… who must inherit this Catastrophe from us… A Generation of abject failures.
The Brain sapping suckiness of it all has reached levels of lobotomy that should not be possible!
Hence I can barely write any blogs as the impetus gets immediately sucked into the void!
Anthony McClean, Portia McPhail, Anthony Mulder, Tara Gregory, Huan (Tom) Hsu, Natasha Bray, and Floyd Fernandes drowned in the Mangatepopo Gorge. (Stuff)
Today marks the 10th anniversary of the river tragedy that took the lives of 6 Elim Christian School students and their teacher Anthony McClean.
Such a terrible event, Yet from the first time I herd the story of Anthony’s heroic exploit I have been overwhelmed and affected by a sense of awe at his humanity and sense of Christian duty that he demonstrated on this fateful day, and though 6 others lost their lives this blogpost is my personal tribute to him in particular… as an exemplar of character and the sort of loving soul that every parent desires in a tutor of their children.
When the River surged trapping the group in a dire situation, Anthony was faced with a Great moral Dilemma… abandon his pupils and Save himself… or… strive to save a physically disabled student cerebral palsy sufferer Tom Hsu, 16, by tying him to his own back and to risk his own life for their sake.
Visualizing this in my mind, I am transported in time and space to witnessing this act of heroism first hand…and I am overcome.
His heroism cost him his life… they died together… yet ten years later the example he set still moves and inspires me and thousands of other New Zealanders.
It ranks in the highest order of Noble deeds… Christ-like… who said “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends…” John15vs13.
His action is the equal of any Teacher who has in such moments of fate… given their lives for their students, and I am reminded of such stories we often read about when there is a US school massacre… the teachers who put themselves between the killers and their Pupils… May God Bless and Keep them all.
This is the spirit of Altruism… the voluntary self sacrifice of personal benefits… out of love…for the sake of others.
True Heroism is not about personal glory, and is impossible for the person who puts their own life as the highest value.
This is taking the Vocation of teaching to its Highest end… placing the life of your students ahead of your own.
Teachers like Anthony McClean demonstrate the *Real virtue* of the vocation… Teaching was never about High wages and Fame… and all about being able to fulfill your personal desire to serve others… The opportunity and privilege to instill wisdom and values in the youth under your care… to empower them to take care of themselves, raise happy and healthy families, and to live great and fulfilling lives.
And the best teachers teach the most important lessons of character… by example… living (and dying) by the values they expound.
Teachers who dont have this quality may be technically smart… yet can never be *Great*… and when any troubles arise… even minor troubles… they will put their own interests ahead of your children.
What parent can have confidence in a Selfish teacher to look after their child, and instill values?
Anthony Mulder was one of the Students who lost his life that day… yet not before performing selfless deeds of heroism!
He positioned himself in the torrent and helped his fellow students to get across.
” Kish Proctor and Sarah Brooks, two of the survivors from the canyoning group, said Ant was an inspiration for his selfless, loving nature and steadfast belief in God.
Fellow Elim youth leader and Pakuranga College student Jessica Hancock described him as a “humble, patient, peaceful, generous and loving guy who has changed so many lives”.
Speaking after the memorial service, Ant’s friends said healing moments had been time spent in his bedroom and talking about the good times they shared with him.
Kish said Ant was voted group leader while at the Sir Edmund Hillary Outdoors Pursuits Centre because he was a seasoned tramper and led by example.
“He stood in the middle of the current and helped all of us across it,” he said.”
Let us Remember this Tragic Day… esp the Deeds of these Two Heroes.
Lets us take inspiration from their selfless actions in the Darkest of hours and endeavour to emulate them in our own lives.
And as Christians… we live in the hope of the Gospel.
